  • Offers a comprehensive discussion of contemporary biomaterials research and development
  • Organized in a sequence that allows the engineering students to be gradually exposed to typically unfamiliar biology-related materials
  • Includes in-depth descriptions of fundamental properties of metal, ceramics, and polymers used in medicine, which competitive texts lack

Biomedical Materials provides a comprehensive discussion of contemporary materials used in biomedical research and development. The pedagogical writing style and structure provides students with an understanding of the fundamental concepts necessary to pursue research and industrial work in this growing area of biomedical science, including characteristics of biomaterials, biological processes, biocompatibility, and applications of materials in implants and medical instruments.

Written by leading researchers in the field, this volume highlights important topics associated with biomedical engineering, medicine and surgery. This textbook takes the reader to the forefront of biomedical materials development, providing graduate students with a taste of how the field is changing, while also serving as a useful reference to physicians and engineers.
